Love’s Travel Stops is boosting its employees’ pay through the first quarter of next year.

Love’s is extending a $2-per-hour pay increase and temporary sick pay related to COVID-19 through March 31, 2021, the company said in a recent news release. The company said it also guaranteed that current store managers will receive quarterly bonuses through the first quarter of next year.

The “Team First” initiative will include hourly employees who assist customers at Love’s hotels, SpeedCo and Love’s Truck Care, according to the news release.

“Our team members did a fantastic job of caring for each other, and our customers in 2020, and we know that will continue into the new year,” said Jenny Love Meyer, executive vice president and chief culture officer for Love’s.

“We want to continue to support our teams as they’re on the front lines and are essential in getting professional driver and four-wheel customers back on the road quickly and safely.”

Earlier this year, Love’s implemented a $2-per-hour raise and additional paid sick leave in COVID-related situations to reward workers’ dedication during the pandemic, according to the news release. The “Team First” initiative also includes half-off meals for workers.
